Hot IQs 'Duck and Cover'

SPIN Staff

Denver trio Hot IQs boast witty lyrics, shake-your-knee hooks, a hot female drummer, and songs that make you want to dance through an avalanche (one is called "Nightstand," an ode to the perfect piece of furniture on which to get down). On "Duck and Cover," frontman Eli Mishkin channels stellastarr*'s Shawn Christensen and dances along a charged post-punky line. Their latest, Dangling Modifier EP, hits shelves today and will be followed by a full-length this spring.
